Hello, we will travel thrue China september 2012. I read that the bus to Datong leaves from Liuliqiao Long Distance Bus Station. Can anyone tell me the earliest time, what the ticket costs and most important, can we purchase tickets in advance from Europe? Do we have to make reservations?

hi Jeffrey,
the earliest bus departing from Liuliqiao Long-distance bus station at 07:10. the cost is CNY 119 per person.
the bus ticket can be purchased at most 10 days in advance, and you can only buy them in Beijing city.
actually, you don't need to make reservations, coz the tickets can be bought when you are at the bus station.

Has anybody caught the bus from Liuliqiao long distance bus station lately? If so what is the price of an adult ticket to Hohhot, and what time does the bus leave Beijing? How long is the trip, and what time does the bus arrive in Hohhot?

Hi Stewart,

it takes about 7 hours on the way.

you should go to the Muxiyuan Long distance Bus station.
from the airport, you can take airport shuttle bus line 1 to Panjiayuan, and walk southward along the road for about 60 meters, you will find the Panjiayuan Bridge bus stop, and take bus Yuntong 107 to Nan Yuan Lu Guo Yuan (the tenth stop after you get on the bus).
walk back (northward) along the road for about 260 meters, you will find the station right across the street.

that's depends on what is your destination. if you go some where close to Beijing, the costs may be within CNY 100, but if a far place, it may cost hundreds of Yuan

I'm afraid the bus tickets are also hard to get, why not take a plane?

there is online ticket booking service, but the website is in Chinese.
i think you can buy the ticket one or two days before departure, or the day you go. you can go to Liuliqiao Long-distance bus station. it is not that hard to buy the ticket for long-distance buses.
it costs CNY 128.

I want to travel from Dongzhumen station to Huai Rou International Conference Centre Station on Bus No. 916 (Express)
1) What is the bus timing and schedule?
2) How long is the journey?

Peter ( Australia ) :10/30/2010 12:06:00 AM

The express 916 bus takes 1.5 hours. It leaves from inside the DOngzhimen terminal, an dhas green writing on the front.
The slower 916 bus, stops at more places, takes about 2 hours. Sometimes you can see a blue bus run from another company also labelled 916 - but it is slow and rely packed.

Brenda :10/10/2010 9:15:00 PM

Hi Tan,
the bus runs from 04:50 to 18:50 every day, and it takes about 3 hours from Dongzhimen to Huairou.

My wife and I want to go to Chengde from Beijing on October 23rd at 8 AM and then return October 24th in later afternoon. We live near the bus terminal at Donzhimenwai Xiejie. Should we go directly to the terminal to buy tickets? How much for round trip tickets? How will we recognize both buses,as we do not yet know our Chinese characters?

Elva :10/23/2010 10:35:00 PM

you can go there directly to buy the tickets.
there's no round-trip tickets, you need to buy the tickets back when you are in the Chengde long-distance bus station. the ticket for one way is about CNY 70.
the buses with sign of ‘beijing to Chengde’ and 'chengde to Beijing' will be the right buses.

How can i reach from Beijing Airport to Pengzhuang 58A, Chongwen District?


Bree :9/24/2010 9:49:00 PM

you can get there either by subway or by taxi.
1. you can take a taxi at the airport, it costs about CNY 110.
2. take the airport express subway line at the airport and get off at Dongzhimen station, then subway line 2 to Xuanwumen station, transfer to subway line 4 and get off at Beijing South Railway Station, then you can take Bus No. 485, 381, 20, 106, 84, 102 or 458 to Yongdingmen Long-distance Bus Station and walk for about 240 meters, you will find the hotel.
